hawaii tonight to try to work on a bargain between democrats and republicans. brianna keilar is traveling with the president in hawaii and joins us now. good morning, brianna. did the president cut his vacation short or was it planned all along? >> reporter: he did cut his vacation short from what was initially planned which was to go through the new year, so yes, he cut it short. i think we have a sense he might be heading back to d.c., carol, you'll recall when talks fell apart last week between house speaker john boehner and the president as the president departed for hawaii he talked to reporters in the briefing room and he said "see you next week" so i think we had a sense he would be coming back earlier than initially planned and it was just a matter of when, not if, and he'll be heading back tonight, that's local time so he'll be traveling overnight, it's quite a long flight, nine or ten hours and he'll be back in d.c. by thursday late morning. >> any behind the scene talks over the holiday? >> reporter: right now the white house has been in communication with senate democrats but
. >> and the president isn't going to hawaii now, right? >> the last i heard, it was still up in the air. you can't imagine he would have a vacation now. or any of them shouldn't have a vacation now. but we don't know. so cliff hanger is the right word for sure. >>> now we turn to a political eye opener and a new poll about the republican party. for the first time, the majority of americans, 53% in fact, say the republicans are too extreme. that is up from 40% just two years ago. also 22% of the republicans polled now admit their party is moving beyond the main stream. >>> another madoff family member heads to prison for being part of that multibillion dollar ponzi scheme. bernard madoff's younger brother, peter, has been sentenced to ten years. he pled guilty in june to conspiracy and falsifying the records of an investment adviser. the younger plaido eer madoff s didn't know about the fraud until his brother told him. a new judge in new york said she had a hard time believing that. >>> and call this an indication of the reduced influence of the 220-year-old new york stock exchange. it's being b
. on to the fiscal cliff this morning. the president cutting his vacation short in hawaii. the president plans to leave for washington tonight. congress expected to return on thursday. president, guys, not expected to actually arrive in washington until tomorrow morning. no talks scheduled that we know of as of yet. all the attention's going to turn to the senate, which tends to be more of a compromising body than the house is. >> yes. and the president is available in person if you should want to go over there and visit with him. or perhaps if he wants to visit with anybody else. the consensus seems to be if you get some sort of a deal, it's obviously not going to be the big deal. it will simply be something that extends the tax cuts for the vast majority of americans, at least those earning less than $250,000 a year. the consensus seems to be, carl, that if we don't get a deal by the second or third or fourth week, the super bowl week, we'll start to feel it in the economy. >> we had a notable sell-off. there is typically a bias on christmas eve, but the worst christmas eve performance for t
, dan evans. and went on a bit of a surfing trip with him in hawaii. it's amazing. wounded warriors don't want people to feel sorry for them. >> no, absolutely not. you know, the way i see it is that someone's always got it 10 times worse than me, you know? i feel with that attitude, it makes you not feel sorry for yourself. i'm lucky and i'm grateful for having this opportunity again. >> is this a catalyst for you to be bowler and do and try things like this? >> yeah, i think so. that's one of the reasons why we chose mount washington for our first climb is, you know, there's a lot of unknown. you know, that factor is one of the ones that we never know, you know? and i feel it has made me a lot bolder, the injury. and overcoming on stack. le s. that's one of the things we hope to accomplish during this climb, as well as the main thing is to raise money for the special operations warrior foundation. >> special operations warrior foundation, is that a dot-com is there a website? >> you can donate directly to them through the website, asenseofhonor.org. that's our website where you can fo

obama returned to washington for a last-minute push before leaving vacation in hawaii, he had separate phone conversations with congressional leaders. but it's not clear the talks helped. house republican leaders say they'll take action on whatever bill the senate can pass. but the senate must act first. brandi and muhammad? >> thank you. oh, to be a fly on the wall today in that meeting when it all happens. >> we've been talking all week about this going down to the deadline. i mean, we are right at that deadline. this is going to be a photo finish. >> and if the house ends up adjourning, it usually takes 48 hours to be called back. so the timing is really key here. whatever happens today could be the deciding factor. >> a lot of it comes down to who is going to blink first. >> if either side each does. >>> also making headlines today, retired general norman schwartzcopf has died from pneumonia. known as stormin' norman, schwartzcopf commanded the u.s. led international coalition that drove saddam hussein's forces out of kuwait in 19ed 1. president obama was among those praising schwa

left for his vacation in hawaii on friday evening, talked about a very pared down, stripped down plan. simply extend the bush tax cuts for people making $250,000 or less, extend unemployment benefits for 2 million people that they're going to run out for, and basically postpone all of the sequester, which would be 110 billion dollars in spending cuts in 2013. now, i'm just not sure i see how republicans are going to go along with that given the fact that you just had the plan b rejected which was going to set the marker not at 250,000, but a million and the speaker couldn't get the votes for that, so, why would republicans now go for the $250,000 that we've been rejecting all along. >> clayton: another animal house reference, it's like the young members of congress trying to get their pledge pin, you know, who are going along trying to vote for this. and they're not-- i mean, let's be honest, this is the reason they didn't get the votes, the 40 or 50 members who didn't want to go along with the speaker on this. you're right, chris. i mean, let's dive into that. how are they going to p

was in hawaii with my headquarters receiving briefings on the future activities that our navies will do together, looking, talking through the issues of the rim of the pacific exercise of which you mentioned that will happen in 20 # 14. we have a growing ability to have a dialogue at the military level that's frank and open. we do that through consulted talks that we do on a periodic basis, and then we build a calendar of events on the areas where we think we'll have the most opportunity to have success working together. we build that calendar of events, and so far, we're having a very good record on meeting objectives and actually completing them. right now, i believe there's, in this time frame, there's exactly -- but there's an hdr exercise we're doing in a bilateral way between the u.s. military, paycom, and the pla. i just sent letters to my counterparts, congratlating them on their promotions, and hoping that we continue to have is a good and open dialogue. in the end, it's, you know, we have the responsibility, the pl organization and the u.s. military have a responsibility to have a good
